Irish Mixed Martial Artist and former two-division champion Conor McGregor has been suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for six-months and fined ₹35 Lakhs for his involvement in a post-fight brawl at UFC 229 which took place in Las Vegas on Oct. 6. The five members of the National Athletic Commission voted in favour of a settlement agreement.
Conor McGregor lost the fight as he tapped in the fourth round and ultimately the Russian star Khabib Nurmagomedov was successful in retaining his UFC Lightweight title.
However, McGregor’s coach John Kavanaugh wasn’t happy with the verdict about Conor McGregor being fined by the commission.

Meanwhile, Khabib Nurmagomedov was handed a nine-month ban by the commission and he will be fined a staggering ₹3.6 crore for being the main instigator of the post-fight brawl. Although the suspension is of nine-months, it could be shortened to six months if he does an anti-bullying course.
Do you guys think that it was fair that Conor McGregor was fined or do you guys think that he was fined much lesser than he should have been?
